In today’s ‘candidate short’ market, hiring a new team member is certainly a major decision that should not be taken lightly. However, if you procrastinate, you may miss out on the very best talent.
Most of the time, candidates are also interviewing with your competitors. By speeding up your hiring process, you can ensure that you don’t miss out. Research indicates that the best candidates in the Permanent Support sector are only on the market for 10 days. Therefore, by simplifying the interview process and evaluating your hiring process you can make all the difference. There is no need to make candidates jump through unnecessary hoops. For example, consider combining first and second round interviews and shortening the initial application so that you respect their time and add efficiency to the process.
It’s difficult to fit hiring activities into the mix when you already have a demanding workload. By partnering with a specialist recruitment agency, with a pool of highly qualified candidates and carefully cultivated networks, you can significantly increase the likelihood of attracting the best talent quickly and efficiently.
